The Honda Accord is one of the most beloved sedans ever. Excellent engineering, comfort, and reliability are reasons Accord owners often buy the same model again. However, every vehicle will have mechanical problems at some time or another.

Here are the top 5 most common Honda Accord repair problems.

#1: Vibration When Braking This problem typically is caused by warped front brake rotors. Some owners describe this as a rattling, shaking, or rubbing sensation. Accords with over 98,000 are more likely to experience this issue. In some cases, the rotors can be machined as a fix. If too thin, the rotors will require replacement. Brake pad and rotor replacement can cost up to $900, parts and labor.

#2: Transmission Failure Transmission slippage, poor shifting, skipping, or failure may occur in some Accords, usually at over 70,000 miles. Repair might require a transmission overhaul or complete replacement If your vehicle is under the factory warranty, the repairs should be covered. If not, costs for repairs can run you anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000.

#3: Compliance Bushing Cracking If you hear squealing or feel shuddering when turning, it could mean that a part of the steering/suspension mechanism is broken. The compliance bushing is typically the culprit, especially in Accords with 95,000 miles or more. In some cases, a cracked compliance bushing will be detected upon routine service or oil change. Typical repair cost for this problem is $500 to $600.

#4: Power Door Lock Failure Your Accord’s power door locks might activate intermittently on their own, usually on vehicles with over 105,000 miles. Also, the remote door lock control might not function properly. If your vehicle is equipped with an alarm, you might have problems with it going off due to a door lock malfunction. Each door has an actuator, and if one is faulty the entire system can be affected. It costs about $200 to have a door lock actuator replaced.

#5: Dashboard Display Dark For Accords with more than 109,000 miles, you might experience the dashboard display going dark, especially the radio and climate control. This problem is caused by a faulty circuit board which should be replaced. The total cost to repair, parts included, can be around $200 to $300.

Overall the Honda Accord has proven to a reliable and dependable vehicle and consistently garners high customer satisfaction reviews. So what new for the 2016 Honda Accord.
